One bus, two buses now up to 10 buses

 (My new American Thinker post)

We call them "Abbott buses" and they keep driving in just about every direction. Number 10 just made it to Los Angeles and here is the story:

As President Joe Biden's open border continues to wreak havoc on the United States, one Democratic city is suffering the consequences. 

Over the weekend, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) sent its tenth bus full of illegal migrants to Los Angeles just days after its mayor criticized the border state for sending migrants.     

Democrat Mayor Karen Bass got a rude awakening when a bus of 39 illegal migrants showed up on her doorstep.   The bus, which included 12 families and 21 children, was sent five days after Abbott sent the ninth shipment to the liberal city during Tropical Storm Hillary. 

“LA has not extended an invitation asking for people to come. This is a political act,” Bass said, despite declaring Los Angeles a sanctuary city in June. 

The mayor of LA is complaining that they didn't invite the migrants.  She is blaming Governor Abbott for playing politics.  Of course, the reality is that Los Angeles did invite them when it pronounced itself a sanctuary city.   

My guess is that some of these cities did not really think that someone would call their bluff on the matter.  It was a great talking point when they were behind the microphone or on campaign mode.  Now, they are dealing with people actually showing up on their location.  It looks a lot different now, doesn't it?

Happy # 80 to the great Lou Piniella

We remember Lou Piniella who was born in Tampa on this day in 1943.

Lou was the kind of guy that you wanted on your side and specially at the plate when the tying or winning run was at second base.   Piniella broke with Baltimore in 1964, traded to Cleveland in 1966 and was Rookie of the Year with the 1969 expansion Kansas City Royals:  .282, 11 HR & 68 RBI.

In 1974, Lou became a Yankee and was an integral part of those winning teams:  .295 over a 11 years and one of the toughest outs in the AL.

After playing, he managed Cincinnati to the 1990 World Series and took Seattle to the ALCS twice.

Frankly, I always cheered for whatever team he was playing for or managing.
